XML API - Get thret ID and CVE (version 8.0)



Working with firewalls on version 7 with a query to the following path: xpath=/config/predefined/threats/vulnerability  I was able to get an XML with CVE of every threat, but on version 8 XML doen't contain associated CVE.


Are any other path to get threat ID/CVE from the API?

I confirmed this on my firewalls, PAN-OS 7.1 shows threat metadata and PAN-OS 8.0 only has the threat name.  Looking into it and will let you know.  Thanks for your patience.

This has been opened as issue PAN-81194.  We'll investigate and if it turns out to be a bug we will push a fix into a future 8.0.x maintenance release.


Unfortunately, I don't know of a workaround at this time, but will let you know if I come up with anything.


Thanks for your help!

Looks like this just got fixed today in the PAN-OS 8.0.4 release (PAN-76042). Good work, @btorresgil.

Glad to help, and thanks for your patience.

Hello again.


On version 8.0.4 I continue having the same problem:


How can I solve it?




L4 Transporter

PAN-OS 8.0 depletes CVE information from old XPATH


For 8.0.4 onward, please use new XPATH in op command.




Example of working output


<response status="success"><result><vulnerability>
<entry name="35931" p="yes">
<threatname>HP Data Protector OmniInet Opcode Buffer Overflow Vulnerability</threatname>
<cve xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

The example above is close, not sure if some of it got stripped out. This works for me on latest versions V8 and higher.
